This year the DWK Fellowship had the largest number of applications to date from a wide range of practitioners from various fields including Architecture, Urban Design, Urban Planning, Design, Art and the Humanities.
We are glad to announce that the application by Chandraprakash Kumare, Maharashtra has been awarded the Doshi We Know 2022-23 fellowship. His application proposes the study of women workers in the construction industry as well as in rural areas through photography and paintings. It proposes to bring about greater empathy and understanding of their lives through the medium of the visual arts. The jury is of the view that this proposal is very much in line with Balkrishna Doshi's concern about people and their lives and is therefore an appropriate choice.
Noted artist Mr. Murali Cherooth has generously agreed to mentor Chandraprakash Kumare, The trustees thank Mr. Cherooth for graciously agreeing to devote time and energy to the DWK fellowship work.
